This tree is simple to make but takes time. I found my 4 year would help but quickly got distracted, while my 5 1/2 year old was more into it and could do more. To make we started with a square base and worked our way up, hot gluing as we went. Then used small twigs that are flexible to weave around the tree to make it look more circle. When it gets "old" we plan on using it for our nature tree this year and covering it in peanut butter, bird seed and other things before placing it outside.
Note~We used all sticks and twigs we found outside, we just let them sit for little to make sure nothing was living in or on them.
